Today is the 8th birthday of our twin niece and nephew so I am posting 2 completely different cards that I made them for their birthday. The first card is the adorably girly card for Claire. I used the Stampin Up Flower Pot #133695 DSP for the background papers. I then stamped created the focal panel using the Kind Koala #134360 from the Stampin Up annual catalog. To color the cute koala I used the Smoky Slate blendabilities assortment #131005 and matted it on a piece of lost lagoon cardstock. I added a scrap piece of Crushed Curry Chevron #130019 ribbon to add texture.
The Kind Koala stamp is one of many single stamps available from the Stampin Up annual catalog. The single stamps are a low cost way to get started with stamping.
The 2nd card is a “boyish” card for our nephew Dylan. I made the gumball green background look quite grassy by texturing the background with square lattice textured impressions embossing folder. I created the soccer ball by using the Hexagon Hive Thinlit #132965 and then cutting it out with a Circle framelit #130911. I added the Geometrical #133161 expression on to a tag cut using the Chalk Talk Framelit #129983. Super simple and I feel this card is a real kick in the grass kinda birthday card.
